I was using a large forstner bit so I had to tighten it a bit more than I usually would to keep the bit from occassionally spinning in the chuck, now I can’t get the chuck to loosen. I tried slipping the round end of a box wrench over the lever on the chuck key to get more leverage, but all that accomplished was bending the lever on the chuck key.
I tried hosing it down with some liquid wrench but it still won’t budge.
I thought about rigging up some way to attach the chuck key to my cordless dewalt impact, but that just seems like it could do more harm than good. Any other ideas? I’m right in the middle of a project, and this is eating up my sunday afternoon which is my prime woodworking time!
EDIT: By the way, I have an older 16.5” Delta DP.
